HTC Droid Eris
Last Updated: Nov 16th,2010
The HTC Droid Eris launched for Verizon Wireless on November 6th in part as the carrier's first Android Phone. However it was overshadowed by the other member of the inaugural Verizon Droid duo - the Motorola Droid. The Droid Eris might look familiar because it was first launched months ago in Europe as the HTC Hero and later showed its face as the Sprint HTC Hero in the United States.
With a few stylistic changes including a taller and thinner frame, call and end hardware buttons and coloration differences, the HTC Droid Eris is essentially the HTC Hero on Verizon Wireless.
The HTC Droid Eris comes loaded with the customized version of Android called "Sense" from HTC that brings many design and functionality improvements to the phone. At the most basic level, there are more homescreens, an improved UI, more widgets and tighter integration with your contacts.
Rather than providing a COMPLETE review of the HTC Droid Eris, we suggest you check out our HTC Hero Review as they are essentially the EXACT same phone.
Although the Droid Eris launched in the shadow of the Motorola Droid, only a couple months ago this was THE BEST Android Phone on the market and with only a $99 price when it first launched, the HTC Droid Eris is an incredibly attractive purchase and comes highly recommended.
